Diachronous behavior of the Antarctic ice sheets: Weddell Sea, Antarctica
Inaccessibility due to harsh weather conditions and perennial sea ice has left the Weddell Sea embayment (WSE) vastly under-studied in comparison to other regions of Antarctica. Yet understanding its deglacial history since ...
Near-surface seismic reflection investigations at a groundwater contamination site
A 3-D seismic reflection survey was conducted at a groundwater contamination site to adequately image the near surface (<20m) at a level of detail to enhance ongoing remediation activities at the site. The site, Operable ...
The thermal and mechanical structure of stable continental lithosphere within a dynamic mantle
Understanding the interaction between continental lithosphere and the convecting mantle is not only important for determining the thermal structure and the role of continental lithosphere in the Earth's heat loss system, ...
A diagenetic study of the lower coralline limestone (oligocene), the Maltese Islands
The Maltese Islands are located on a broad platform extending from northern Africa to Sicily which divides the Mediterranean Sea into an eastern and western basin. Strata exposed on the islands range from Upper Oligocene ...
Glacial and climate history of the Firth of Tay, northeastern Antarctic peninsula
This study presents the Holocene deglacial and climate history from the Firth of Tay, Antarctic Peninsula derived from sediment cores and geophysical analysis. A robust chronostratigraphy is used to establish the timing ...
Pore-Scale Controls on Permeability, Fluid Flow, and Methane Hydrate Distribution in Fine-Grained Sediments
Permeability in fine-grained sediments is governed by the surface area exposed to fluid flow and tortuosity of the pore network. I modify an existing technique of computing permeability from nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) ...
